Berbers in Algeria

It is interesting to see the kinds of stigmatizing going on in France and too see how similar it is to the kind of thinking that is going on in America. It seems that in certain groups simply being Arab is enough to be considered a threat even though an Arab person might not have done anything threatening. We also see this in some of the reports mentioned in the article where it says Berber are uncivilized warriors. It is this kind of labeling that leads to racism in the public, declaring another culture below your own.

What leads to this kind of talk from people? Is it because they are simply threatened by them or something more?
